Golf, hockey, all kinds of hunting but mostly archery big game, geocaching, and working on my 1969 Camaro. Currently swapping an LS engine into it.

My other hobby is coin collecting, mostly pennies. I’m back to 1843 now in consecutive years (1843-present). This hobby doesn’t really have much in common with hiking / climbing / 14ers, although there is one glaring similarity. It offers an opportunity to complete checklists.
Coins are cool. I have a small collection, mainly from when I was Much younger. Ghe oldest I have is a1911penny, and a 1913 buffalo nickel.

I like to play piano - mostly classical. Was really good once upon a time then kinda screwed up the pointer finger on my left hand so not near as good now. I also love live theatre (damn covid!) and opera (damn covid!). I kinda like building stuff - built a 10'x8' she-shed for my wife and ran power to it. Now she'd like a chandelier but not sure there's enough headroom for that...

Jay, I am impressed - you seem to be the only one here mentioning classical music. I play violin (classical only). Just last March before COVID (seems like a different lifetime though) we went to hear The Queen of Spades (Tchaikovsky) in the Lyric Opera Chicago. Who's your favorite piano composer/what pieces?

Flying(forced hobby), weightlifting, golf, fishing, Bourbon, Beer, and the ongoing struggle to understand my teenage kids. I also love pottery, haven't had a chance to throw in a long time and I plan on getting a wheel and kiln as a retirement gift for myself.

Pre-COVID my biggest interest outside of climbing was live music, which I always struggled to find a balance between mountains and music. I've seen Phish and The Disco Biscuits about 80x each ("I Man" is a Biscuits song).
i CANNOT BELIEVE covid has monopolized our lives so much that i could overlook my formerly serious addiction to live music. man i miss concerts at the rose and red rocks

Playing hockey, running, reading, golf. Other normal stuff like concerts and things when it’s possible again.

Which is why I'm putting my fish aquarium outside where he can't access it.
But won't it freeze?

WVMountaineer, that's an impressive Grinch lightshow! But I'm glad you're not my neighbor.
The lights would drive me nuts!
